Abstract

Effect of Oral Hydration Therapy on Isolated Oligo-Hydroamnios Cases & Perinatal Outcome

Oligohydroamnios means reduced amount of amniotic fluid and it has been defined as a harbinger of adverse perinatal outcome commonly associated with higher incidence of abnormal labour, intra-partum fetal distress, increased operative deliveries and low Apgar scores. Clinically it is not possible to quantify the amniotic fluid. Best non invasive semi-quantitative & reproducible method of assessment of amniotic fluid volume is Amniotic Fluid Index (AFI) measured by ultrasonographic four quadrant technique.

Keywords: Isolated oligohydroamnios; Oral hydration; Amniotic fluid index(AFI); Perinatal outcome
